Doctors are reliant on mobile technology, it has been advised

Those in the healthcare industry are becoming ever more reliant on mobile technologies such as the latest phones, it has been suggested.

According to a new study by Motorola - entitled the Enterprise Mobility Healthcare Barometer - a number of technologies are now essential to doctors, nurses and others in the field.

Over 80 per cent of international respondents dealing in the information technology sector said portable systems were more vital to the daily operations of the healthcare industry than they were last year.

Vivian Funkhouser, principal of global healthcare solutions for Motorola, said there were an increasing number of high-performance mobile technologies that were in development that will benefit those in patient care.

"With a vast array of mobile computing and bar code scanning devices and RFID and wireless network technologies, Motorola is addressing the identified industry pain points," she added.

Those looking to recycle used mobiles for a new model may wish to consider Motorola's line of devices - which include the ROKR E8 and MOTO Z10.
